Type 2 diabetes seriously affects human health and burdens public health systems. Pancreatic β‑cell apoptosis contributes to a reduction in β‑cell mass, which is responsible for the occurrence of type 2 diabetes. However, the mechanism that underlies this effect remains unclear. In the present study, the role of forkhead box O1 (Foxo1) was investigated(More)
To identify DNA aptamers demonstrating binding specificity for Shigella dysenteriae, a whole-bacterium Systemic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential enrichment (SELEX) method was applied to a combinatorial library of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) molecules. After several rounds of selection using S. dysenteriae as the target, the highly enriched(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effect of desflurane versus sevoflurane in pediatric anesthesia by conducting meta-analysis. METHODS Studies were searched from PubMed, Medline, Springer, Elsevier Science Direct, Cochrane Library and Google Scholar up to July 2014. Weighted mean difference (WMD) or risk ratio (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were considered(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Prevention of diabetes requires maintenance of a functional beta-cell mass, the postnatal growth of which depends on beta cell proliferation. Past studies have shown evidence of an effect of an incretin analogue, Exendin-4, in promoting beta cell proliferation, whereas the underlying molecular mechanisms are not completely understood.

BACKGROUND/AIMS Global cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (GCIR) may incur neurocognitive impairment. Tea polyphenols (TP) have strong anti-oxidant capacity. This study planned to investigate the protective effect of TP against the neurocognitive impairment caused by GCIR and its mechanism. METHODS One-stage anterior approach for cerebral four-vessel occlusion(More)
Prostaglandin F2α (PGF2A) has multiple roles in the birth process in addition to its vital contractile role. Our previous study has demonstrated that PGF2A can modulate uterine activation proteins (UAPs) in cultured pregnant human myometrial smooth muscle cells (HMSMCs). The objective of this study was to define the signalling pathways responsible for PGF2A(More)
In this paper, a sensitive immunoassay method was proposed for Listeria monocytogenes detection by using highly fluorescent bioconjugated nanoparticles probe. (FITC-IgG)-doped fluorescent silica nanoparticles (fsNPs) firstly were synthesized by a microemulsion method and characterized by TEM and fluorescent spectra. Then the prepared fsNPs were conjugated(More)
Obesity and β-cell dysfunction due to oxidative stress impact the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus. We co-cultured 3T3L1 adipocytes and islet cells in the presence or absence of the antioxidant α-lipoic acid (LA) and assayed the effects of the adipocytes and LA on the secretion of insulin by the islet cells and on the activities of factors involved(More)
As a new hormone, betatrophin has gained attention as a potential new target to combat insulin resistance (IR) and diabetes. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine and metabolic disorder among women of the reproductive age with long term sequelae which include IR and metabolic syndrome. The aim of this study is to evaluate the circulating(More)
The objective of this study is to present a familial Cushing syndrome (CS) caused by multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1)-associated thymic carcinoid. Immunohistochemistry, gene sequencing, loss of heterozygosity analysis, and Western blot were used to determine the expression of ACTH in MEN-1-related thymic tumors, MEN1 gene mutation, the pattern(More)
